Lagos State Government has closed Airport bridge near Toyota bus stop.
This followed the tanker which exploded last Thursday near the bridge at Toyota bus stop on Oshodi/Isolo expressway.
The government said the bridge has to be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic to enable it conduct integrity tests.
The state Commissioner for Transportation Frederic Oladeinde, who disclosed this in a statement yesterday, announced alternative routes for motorists pending the outcome of the tests and the reopening of the bridge.
According to him, motorists from Mile 2 to Cele on Apapa-Oshodi Expressway approaching Iyana-Isolo through Daleko Bridge will need to make use of Aiye and Osolo Way to Asa Afariogun through 7&8 to access International Airport Road.
Motorists from Toyota will make use of the service lanes by Armed Forces Resettlement Centre to BOC Gases on old NAFDAC Headquarters, through a U-turn at Cappa on Agege Motor Road to Bolade/ Oyetayo Street (Oshodi-Isolo Local Govt Secretariat) through Bolade on Apapa-Oshodi Expressway via Charity in order to reach International Airport Road.
Motorists from Bus Terminal 2 Transport Interchange inwards Charity on Apapa -Oshodi Expressway can connect International Airport Road from Toyota through Anthony Oke to Ikorodu Road on the service lanes and return via Anthony Oke inwards Oshodi Oke to Charity and connect International Airport Road.
